Spanish is my very first foreign language that I've been studying off-and-on since 1995. My specialty is grammar but I also can go over vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics. My Hispanic friends call me "Pablo" or "Pablito" and some people have even told me I speak Spanish better than I do English (whatever that's supposed to mean). I have both a BA and MA in Spanish and wrote my Master's thesis on Miguel de Cervantes' "Don Quijote de la Mancha."
About Paul S.

I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!! Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.
